OLD FOLKS ON THE PORCH

OLD FOLKS ON THE PORCH Old folks on the porch Rocking gently, hearts entwined, Holding hands and slightly smiling As their memories unwind. "Do you remember when," she said. He said, "Of course, you know I do," "The first time that we met; we kissed; And when I said that I love you." "Well what about the time," she said. "Oh yes," he said, "I do recall, "The year we bought this house, this land, "Sometime in the early fall." They sat and talked for hours that day As birds performed a symphony, They spoke a while of years gone by; They feared the loss of memory. "You know, I think it's time," she said. "Yes," he said, "this is the day." They kissed and hugged while holding hands. They knew it had to end this way. They held the guns up to their heads While quietly he lit the torch, There was nothing left but ashes of, Old folks on the porch. Phillip McKenzie
